Alexander Wang Expands to Men

Alexander Wang is joining the ever growing crew (Matthew Williamson, Roland Mouret, Gareth Pugh, and Christophe Decarnin) of womenswear designers crossing gender lines.“It’s strange that so many designers are doing men’s now, but for us it’s a component that’s always been there. The idea has always been there, I’m just expanding it,” said Wang.

The component being that his women’s clothes are already pretty tomboyish - a kind of reverse Dior Homme - and that the boyfriends of the girls who wear his clothes need their own slouchy tanks, ripped denim shorts and tight leather pants.

Wang’s already rocking the samples while out and about so if you’re desperate for a sneak peek… We can’t tell you where to find him but we can almost guarantee he’ll take next month’s bow in the line and then we can discuss just how much the official collection will vary from his usual baggy t-shirt and skinny jean uniform. The first collection for the boys will be Spring 2010 and is set for release later this year.
